The #ArtsKickers Awards uncovers, rewards and connects people who are creating pathways for disadvantaged communities into the arts world. Founded in 2017 by arts activist Angie Gough, supporting work across east London and beyond. The awards scheme is also a platform to support emerging talent on their journey.
Across eight award categories profiling and celebrating the great people out there working hard to bridge that participation gap.
Tracy Barbe, our Schools & Outreach Officer, was nominated in the ‘Special Projects & People’s Choice’ category for the Dramatic Discoveries project she lead in collaboration with Art Hoppers, Thomas Buxton Primary School and Museum of London Archeology, as part of PLAY-HOUSE, our free Easter 2018 family friendly weekend. The project engaged year 5 pupils with the theatrical histories of the area and encouraged discovery and creativity, culminating in an exhibition of the work during PLAY-HOUSE.
As an organisation, we are all very proud of Tracy’s work and #ArtsKickers nomination, and congratulate all the nominees and winners on their tremendous work to make the arts and creativity accessible.
Congratulations to all!
